241 Years Ago Today

241 years ago today a tyrannical government sent its soldiers to a small town to confiscate the subjects' weapons.  Long story short, the soldiers were stopped at the Old North Bridge outside of town, and after an eight year fight that started that day, the subjects became citizens.

Today's lesson - kill anyone who tries to take your gun.  If possible, pick a scenic place where thousands can visit each year and say a quiet "thank you."

UPDATED 4.21.16:

Glorious Hat owner, Ann Coulter, has a great post at Breitbart:
In all, about 50 Americans were killed in the Battle of Concord. By population, that’s the equivalent of more than 6,000 Americans dying in a single military action today.

But today, Republican political consultants would rather throw away the country those brave patriots died for, than risk their cozy salaries, jobs and status.


So far, seven of the 13 Colonies have spoken: Georgia, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia — and, on the anniversary of Lexington and Concord, New York. All seven held elections, not party-rigged conferences or caucuses. All of them have gone for Trump. It looks like the 13 Colonies are trying to save America, once again.
